Mysuru: Responding to BJP national president, Amit Shah's comment that he was A Hindu, Chief Minister Siddaramaiah on Thursday asked him to clarify if he himself was a Hindu or a Jain. Mr Siddaramaiah, who was speaking to reporters on his arrival at the Mysuru airport, added, "Mr Amit Shah is afraid of me and that's why he follows me wherever I go. Let him go wherever he wants. Although several BJP leaders, including Mr B S Yeddyurappa toured Nanjangud and Gundlupet during the by- elections, you know who won them." Asserting that he would contest from Chamundeswari constituency and state JD(S) chief, H.D. Kumaraswamy could say whatever he liked on the subject, he said, " I am confident that I will win from here. Does Kumarswamy know how many times I have contested from the constituency? It's five times and I only lost twice."
Kicking off his campaign in Chamundeswari constituency later on Thursday , The CM visited several villages, holding road shows, visiting temples, going door- to- door in some places and holding public meetings in others to win over voters.
